Michele is one of the most motivated and upbeat people I have ever met. I started training with her a little over a year ago in an effort to lose weight, gain strength, and live a healthier lifestyle. I had just finished treatment for cancer and I didn’t have much confidence in how much I could achieve. Michele has been encouraging and supportive in all aspects of my well-being not just my workouts. Her motivation and enthusiasm has been a driving force in helping me persevere and continue to challenge my ability. She knows exactly how to motivate me, push me, entertain me, and distract me during my workouts. Michele customizes each workout and they constantly change so I am never bored and I continually learn something new. Before I started working out with Michele, I walked on a treadmill and used a few pieces of nautilus equipment at the gym. I now enjoy our ever changing routines which include boxing, CrossFit, cardio, weight lifting, and interval training. Michele’s infectious positivity and belief in me helped me believe too! I am stronger in both body and mind with much thanks to Michele.
Michele has a gravitational pull around her and an infectious positive attitude. As a trainer she expects you to dig deep and pull back emotional layers. She expects you to do work on yourself from the inside out. For me personally, I came to her with a broken body and spirit, a shadow of my former self. With fear so strong it was almost tangible. I have now been with her three months and the transformation I have gone through is nothing short of a miracle. It’s been almost seven years now since I had open heart surgery and seven years since I allowed myself to be the athlete I once was. One day at a time, one week at a time she has helped me to melt away the fear and train like the athlete she knows I AM. She found me broken and she Sees ME WHOLE. I AM STILL HERE and I HAVE A PURPOSE!! It is something bigger than me. I believe in the human connection and that that connection will inspire the person next to you to be greater. Michele has the ability to reach this part of you, inspire you to be great and then inspire you to make the people around you great. I have taken my training and life coaching she has given me into my family life and my professional life. Michele is a Mind, Body and Soul life coach.
I initially reached out to Michele to enlist her house cleaning services via her company "Below the Surface Cleaning” but I was also aware of her super star status as a fitness instructor in our local community. I knew Michele from the early 1990's when we briefly worked together in a local bank and I always admired her upbeat personality and zest for life. In March 2020, I saw a local article profiling her new personal coaching business called “Inspire 4 Life" and I was intrigued by her "Triad" approach which is the integration of body, mind and soul to achieve the healthiest optimal life.
Past events of 2019 had spiraled me into a very fragile emotional and physical state and it's interesting that what started out as a call for help to clean my house turned into an opportunity for a life changing transformation. I am a classic example of "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. Michele believed that she could help me but warned me that it will be messy as we work to peel back the layers of the onion and she was absolutely correct on that! Just like everyone else in the world in 2020, Michele had to pivot her business to the virtual world and she does a killer Facetime workout! It's like she is right in the room with me and I do prefer working out in my home as opposed to going to a gym. I attribute her sensitivity to know what I needed when as a crucial piece to the puzzle so I didn't get frustrated and quit. She continues to "up-level" me in a good way and celebrates all my wins as I have come along way since my first "work out" which consisted of her pulling me from the couch and taking me for a walk! I shared with Michele my big audacious goal of getting back on the ski hill to celebrate my 60th birthday in 2022 and with her help I know I can not only do that but anything else I set my mind to!
